soniknitr posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsOver time, I observed that the 580 could not find much use, primarily because my writing preferences have graduated towards softer and larger nibs along with time. So here comes the saviour from TWSBI - The Vac 700, with a bigger nib of #6 size, and a vacuum plunger mechanism. Personally, I prefer the concept of an ink shut off valve. If you are looking for a review of the 580, here it is.

Folks, here’s a quick review of my recently-acquired Franklin-Christoph Marietta 20. In a nutshell, I love this pen. I have two Stabilis 65s from F-C, which are in ice (i.e. see-through), which I turned into eye-droppers for red and blue ink. I wanted a basic black pen for everyday writing in black.

provis posted a topic in MontblancI just received a coral streamlined MB Danish 20, but it's a tad small for my hands -- I generally prefer the length and girth of the 146/136 unposted. I know there is a No. 25 model in the same production time frame. Does anyone know if it's the same size as the No.20, or is it a size #6 equivalent?
